Since March 15, 1994, Troop 175 has had the honor to see 40 of it's Scouts rise to the highest rank a Boy Scout can achieve, Eagle Scout. The path to Eagle Scout is a long, challenging path but also rewarding. Troop 175 instills in it's Scouts that their future is their own and only they can know how far they want to go in the program. The Troop never forces or pressures a boy to advance, but it also never turns away a Scout who needs help in achieving their goal, whatever that is. Join Troop 175 and find out how fun Scouts can be!
Our troop is chartered by the Moose Family Center in Joliet, IL and we are proud to be one of the few Troops that still believes that all boys should be honored to wear the uniform of the Boy Scouts of America.  Our scouts are required to wear the full BSA uniform including shirt, neckerchief, pants, belt and socks.  We believe that all boys should strive to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent, regardless if they are wearing a uniform or not.  This is what makes Troop 175 one of the best Boy Scout troops around!
Boy Scout Troop 175 has a scout trip just about every month. Check out of some of the locations we have been in recent years here.

If a Boy Scout attends his weekly patrol and troop meetings, participates in a monthly weekend troop outing, and attends long-term summer camp with his troop, he will have spent as much time with Scouting in a year as he spends in the classroom.
